**INTERNET EMERGENCY** **KEEP OUR PRIVACY**

This is an emergency.

The government is planning on doing something to stop piracy and illegal downloads.

And by doing that, they will be taking away ALL OF YOUR INTERNET PRIVACY.

They will watch everything you download, EVERYTHING
They will make sure nothing is against the "Government Policy"
They will document EVERYTHING you do online. You will have no privacy at all

This is very urgent and wrong. To help stop this, PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW.

Post a DeviantART journal, a news article, put it on facebook, myspace, twitter, youtube, and any other website you use.

WE MUST STOP THIS. WE MUST HAVE PRIVACY!

[B]UPDATE:[/B]

This is ACTA who is going to stop piracy, WHICH ISN'T A BAD DEAL BUT HERES THE CATCH.

THIS IS NOT ABOUT PIRACY.
THIS IS ABOUT PRIVACY.

Everyone on a computer will be monitored of their progress. No more privacy at all for anybody. NOPE.

- ISPS will now watch what you download, and tattle on you if you download a music track/ any data / rapidshares / torrents etc.
- ISPS will tattle on you, when you do anything which goes against "Governments policy".
- ISPS will be able to document and store EVERYTHING you do online. nothing will ever be private again

Potential border searches are covered by the "Border Measures" proposal of ACTA. As of February 2009 and according to University of Ottawa law professor Michael Geist there is significant disagreement among countries on this topic: "Some countries are seeking the minimum rules, the removal of certain clauses, and a specific provision to put to rest fears of iPod searching customs officials by excluding personal baggage that contains goods of a non-commercial nature. The U.S. is pushing for broad provisions that cover import, export, and in-transit shipments."[42] Newspaper reported that the draft agreement would empower security officials at airports and other international borders to conduct random ex officio searches of laptops, MP3 players, and cellular phones for illegally downloaded or "ripped" music and movies. Travellers with infringing content would be subject to a fine and may have their devices confiscated or destroyed.

"Canadian officials travel to Guadalajara, Mexico this week to resume negotiations on the still-secret Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. The discussion is likely to turn to the prospect of supporting three strikes and you’re out systems that could result in thousands of people losing access to the Internet based on three allegations of copyright infringement. Leaked ACTA documents indicate that encouraging the adoption of three-strikes - often euphemistically described as “graduated response” for the way Internet providers gradually send increasingly threatening warnings to subscribers - has been proposed for possible inclusion in the treaty."

No. I know nobody is going to want this.

So what can you do?

You can start by spreading the word. This isn't some chain mail, this is serious.

They're going to monitor EVERYONE AND THEIR PRIVACY WILL BE GONE. And I don't want to log into my computer and see that someone is watching me.

From [URL="http://www.anti-acta.com/"]This Page[/URL]:
[QUOTE=Anti ACTA Webpage]"ACTA is an abbreviation for the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. It is an International Treaty that will be pushed to implementation by 2010. It has been discussed in secret since October 2007, and has been leaked by government officials who were against the unconstitutional, ineffective, inhumane, and unlawful nature of such a treaty.

Countries affected by this treaty include but are not limited to:

Australia, Canada, the European Union, Japan, The Republic of Korea, Mexico, Morocco, New Zealand, Singapore, Switzerland and the United States

The official goal of the agreement is the international enforcement of strong intellectual property rights. Some of our concerns include the vague, amorphous manner in which “counterfeit” is used in many of the public comments. These uses run the gamut from undisputedly illegal products to expressly legitimate generic products. We believe that ACTA holds the potential to restrict innovation, consumer choice and freedom on the Internet by it's many restrictions and its changes to the legal front on copyrights.

The scope of ACTA includes counterfeit goods, generic medicines, Internet censorship, irrational new downloading laws and what is termed "piracy over the Internet". ACTA is a treaty, which would overcome many court precedents in your own country that defines consumer rights as to "fair use" and would remove any limitations on the application of intellectual property laws. This means that ACTA would overrule any laws in your own country, and deal harsher, unfair and ineffective punishment to anyone suspected of piracy, without a trial in court. If you are just suspected of listening to songs illegally, or uploading anything illegal, you may be dealt with harshly, against the laws of your own country.

ACTA also makes Internet Service Providers legally responsible for any of it's users downloaded content. ACTA gives recording industries more rights to enforce copyrights and officers of the law the right to search any digital device for copyrighted material. Did you pay for the songs on your iPod?" (if you paid for the songs but ripped them from a CD you bought and put them on your ipod it would be illegal) "Under the new law, that instantly classifies you as a criminal, and the same classification as murderers and rapists. You will get a criminal record. Even if you do not download songs onto your iPod, you will feel the effects as millions, possibly billions of dollars in taxpayer's money will be poured in to catch these "criminals", money that can be used to save lives.

Part of ACTA deems anyone accused of copyright infringement to "compensate" for the loss in profit to recording companies. They want harsher punishments for these criminals. These recording companies, such as UMG, earn upwards of $1 billion in 2009. However, the RIAA (Recording Industries Association of America) recently sued a 12 year old girl for downloading, as well as many other people. They are seeking $150 000 per song, on allofmp3.com[1]. How much harsher will they go?

Isn't there a point where they must stop?"[/QUOTE]

And it only gets worse, loss of privacy, higher internet bills to pay for that loss of privacy, random checks of your hardware to make sure you've paid for everything on it. And protection of things like large prescription drug companies international monopolies.

HOWEVER- the final draft of the bill will be released to the public before the politicans "decide to sign it" ( [URL="http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE67J5A220100821"]http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE67J5A220100821[/URL] ) so contact your congressman, spread the word to protect our human rights and freedoms before they are lost for good.

This is against the American Constitution in every possible way, this is infringing on our rights, what they are doing is illegal and immoral

Thaat's just a part of what they are doing, to read more on it, click on the link on the top of the page to read the whole story

How can we stop this? You can start by spreading the word!!!!! Post this on FaceBook, twitter it to your friends, make a DeviantART journal, ANYTHING to keep our privacy!!!!!

*sigh*

Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement

Pretty much, the big developed countries are making an international treaty to help hold up copyrights and intellectual property laws worldwide. This of course is being pushed by the media companies (record labels, movie studios, etc).

What is known of this treaty is that it's pushing ISPs to be more active in protecting people's property. This would be accomplished with network-layer filtering, which would make it possible for the ISP to see everything you do online. This is obviously a huge security invasion.

Redstar, people with your attitude are going to be the downfall of everyone's rights and liberties.

They already do.

They already do.

They already do.

I mean, ACTA sucks and all, but this kind of thing is hardly new. The best thing you can do (aside from writing to your politicians) is to encrypt as much as you can, so that nobody at your ISP, or in between, can tell what you're doing.


If I'm not doing anything morally-wrong or illegal I really don't care what the government does.

The problem is, what do you do when the government makes things illegal that aren't morally wrong?

The U.S. is pushing for broad provisions that cover import, export, and in-transit shipments."[42] Newspaper reported that the draft agreement would empower security officials at airports and other international borders to conduct random ex officio searches of laptops, MP3 players, and cellular phones for illegally downloaded or "ripped" music and movies. Travellers with infringing content would be subject to a fine and may have their devices confiscated or destroyed.

"Canadian officials travel to Guadalajara, Mexico this week to resume negotiations on the still-secret Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. The discussion is likely to turn to the prospect of supporting three strikes and you’re out systems that could result in thousands of people losing access to the Internet based on three allegations of copyright infringement. Leaked ACTA documents indicate that encouraging the adoption of three-strikes - often euphemistically described as “graduated response” for the way Internet providers gradually send increasingly threatening warnings to subscribers - has been proposed for possible inclusion in the treaty."

No. I know nobody is going to want this.

So what can you do?

You can start by spreading the word. This isn't some chain mail, this is serious.

They're going to monitor EVERYONE AND THEIR PRIVACY WILL BE GONE. And I don't want to log into my computer and see that someone is watching me.

"ACTA is an abbreviation for the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. It is an International Treaty that will be pushed to implementation by 2010. It has been discussed in secret since October 2007, and has been leaked by government officials who were against the unconstitutional, ineffective, inhumane, and unlawful nature of such a treaty.

Countries affected by this treaty include but are not limited to:

Australia, Canada, the European Union, Japan, The Republic of Korea, Mexico, Morocco, New Zealand, Singapore, Switzerland and the United States

The official goal of the agreement is the international enforcement of strong intellectual property rights. Some of our concerns include the vague, amorphous manner in which “counterfeit” is used in many of the public comments. These uses run the gamut from undisputedly illegal products to expressly legitimate generic products. We believe that ACTA holds the potential to restrict innovation, consumer choice and freedom on the Internet by it's many restrictions and its changes to the legal front on copyrights.

The scope of ACTA includes counterfeit goods, generic medicines, Internet censorship, irrational new downloading laws and what is termed "piracy over the Internet". ACTA is a treaty, which would overcome many court precedents in your own country that defines consumer rights as to "fair use" and would remove any limitations on the application of intellectual property laws. This means that ACTA would overrule any laws in your own country, and deal harsher, unfair and ineffective punishment to anyone suspected of piracy, without a trial in court. If you are just suspected of listening to songs illegally, or uploading anything illegal, you may be dealt with harshly, against the laws of your own country.

ACTA also makes Internet Service Providers legally responsible for any of it's users downloaded content. ACTA gives recording industries more rights to enforce copyrights and officers of the law the right to search any digital device for copyrighted material. Did you pay for the songs on your iPod?" (if you paid for the songs but ripped them from a CD you bought and put them on your ipod it would be illegal) "Under the new law, that instantly classifies you as a criminal, and the same classification as murderers and rapists. You will get a criminal record. Even if you do not download songs onto your iPod, you will feel the effects as millions, possibly billions of dollars in taxpayer's money will be poured in to catch these "criminals", money that can be used to save lives.

Part of ACTA deems anyone accused of copyright infringement to "compensate" for the loss in profit to recording companies. They want harsher punishments for these criminals. These recording companies, such as UMG, earn upwards of $1 billion in 2009. However, the RIAA (Recording Industries Association of America) recently sued a 12 year old girl for downloading, as well as many other people. They are seeking $150 000 per song, on allofmp3.com[1]. How much harsher will they go?

Isn't there a point where they must stop?"

And it only gets worse, loss of privacy, higher internet bills to pay for that loss of privacy, random checks of your hardware to make sure you've paid for everything on it. And protection of things like large prescription drug companies international monopolies.

HOWEVER- the final draft of the bill will be released to the public before the politicans "decide to sign it" ( http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE67J5A220100821 ) so contact your congressman, spread the word to protect our human rights and freedoms before they are lost for good.

This is against the American Constitution in every possible way, this is infringing on our rights, what they are doing is illegal and immoral

Thaat's just a part of what they are doing, to read more on it, click on the link on the top of the page to read the whole story

How can we stop this? You can start by spreading the word!!!!! Post this on FaceBook, twitter it to your friends, make a DeviantART journal, ANYTHING to keep our privacy!!!!! Contact your local Congressman, download these propaganda fliers against ACTA, print them out, and hand them out to people, or sign the anti ACTA petition

This is not spam, this is not a chain letter, this is a serious situation, our internet lives are at stake here!!!!!

I agree.

This is an emergency.

The government is planning on doing something to stop piracy and illegal downloads.

And by doing that, they will be taking away ALL OF YOUR INTERNET PRIVACY.

They will watch everything you download, EVERYTHING
They will make sure nothing is against the "Government Policy"
They will document EVERYTHING you do online. You will have no privacy at all

This is very urgent and wrong. To help stop this, PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW.

Post a DeviantART journal, a news article, put it on facebook, myspace, twitter, youtube, and any other website you use.

WE MUST STOP THIS. WE MUST HAVE PRIVACY!

UPDATE:

This is ACTA who is going to stop piracy, WHICH ISN'T A BAD DEAL BUT HERES THE CATCH.

THIS IS NOT ABOUT PIRACY.
THIS IS ABOUT PRIVACY.

Everyone on a computer will be monitored of their progress. No more privacy at all for anybody. NOPE.

- ISPS will now watch what you download, and tattle on you if you download a music track/ any data / rapidshares / torrents etc.
- ISPS will tattle on you, when you do anything which goes against "Governments policy".
- ISPS will be able to document and store EVERYTHING you do online. nothing will ever be private again
